This review was preformed with an Italix Parson's Essential and on a Rhodia Dot PadI have had my eye on this ink for awhile, but since the recent problems with the formulation I have never been able to try it out. Thankfully Mr. Tardiff over at Noodler's was able to resolve the issues with the in recipe, and we have the original BSIAR back! Personally when it comes to burgandy/magenta inks my favorite is Pilot Iroshizuku Yama-Budo. The shades of these two inks are a little too close together to warrant owning a bottle of each, but that doesn't mean this is a bad ink. The waterproofness of this ink, which is unheard of in inks this shade, is awesome. If you haven't already check this ink out. On to the ink!
